I finally got around to taking pictures of this! Getting a good picture of something this size is difficult. Thanks to everyone who participated in this project! I think it turned out really wonderfully! We made $20,000 for Seattle Children's Hospital at the charity auction!

This quilt is a collaboration between 34 different artists. Each artist sent a square to me and I combined them into this larger piece. WhiteDove-Creations suggested adding Lauren Faust's OC to the list of included ponies and she even was able to get Lauren to sign the square for us! It was a lot of work and took much longer than I anticipated. I'm glad I left myself a lot of time to get it done! Even with the time I gave myself, I didn't feel like I really had the time to make the border with the various scraps as I originally intended, so the quilt isn't queen sized as planned, but it's still a good size! The quilt is about the right size for a double bed, though could easily be displayed on a larger bed as well or hung on a wall.

Here is a list of all the squares and the artists who made them. If I made any mistakes with the list, let me know. A few of the squares had different crafters than were originally assigned to them and I may have messed up something on the list because of that, but I think this is the final list. Sorry, they aren't in the order they are on the quilt. I just pulled the list from the spreadsheet I made while I was figuring out assignments.

I organized the project and sewed the whole thing together, yes. The squares are by a number of different artists. I made the Doctor Whooves and Twilight Sparkle squares.

Thanks! It was a really great project, if a little stressful. Hopefully this year's will be just as awesome!

How do people get involved? Do you choose people or do people volunteer? I'd love to help out with the nest one if I can.

People volunteer. I don't know if there is going to be a next one though unless someone else decides to organize it. With the hassle I had to go through both last year and this year, I'm not sure I'm up to running it a third year in a row. We'll see though!

I can imagine how much stress it would have been to organise, but you're amazing for doing it! good luck with it all! :D

Organizing this many artists is definitely not easy! It should be worth it in the end, but I just don't know that I can handle the stress a third year in a row. Thank you! :)
